Synopsis:
A mixed programme of performances by the stars of the world renowned Kirov Ballet Company, showcasing highlights from the most famous classic ballet dances.

The Dancer
Ninel Alexandrovna Kurgapkina (1929-2009) was a heralded dancer and Prima Ballerina with Russia's Kirov Ballet for 25 years. During her tenure with the legendary Company, she became renowned for her distinctive style-which is best remembered for her raw, organic dance movements that captured her sense of playfulness and beautifully juxtaposed the customarily formal Soviet Ballet tradition. Ninel Kurgapkina's longtime presence in the Ballet world, her famed partnerships with Rudolf Nureyev and Mikhail Baryshnikov, and her remarkable personality made the ballerina one of most beloved Russian dancers of the 20th Century.
The Program
V.I.E.W. is proud to present this gala performance on video, honoring the incomparable Ninel Kurgapkina. Experience the ballerina in all her glory, dancing with other stars from the Kirov in scenes from some of her most important roles.
